The Vingt-8 wristwatch was presented at Baselworld 2011 and was of particular significance to Kari Voutilainen as it marked the first release of his new in-house movement that was entirely conceived, assembled and finished at his atelier in Môtiers, Switzerland.

The glazed back show cases the high grade movement with direct impulse double wheel escapement and large balance. 

The watch is complete with its presentation box and papers.
